This cheesey sausage dip is the perfect party dip recipe. Serve with a substantial corn chip to ensure perfect scoops everytime.
1 pound ground hot pork sausage
1 (10-ounce) can diced tomato and green chiles
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
How to Make It
Cook sausage in a large skillet, stirring until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well.
Drain diced tomato and green chiles, reserving 1/4 cup liquid.
Stir together sausage, diced tomato and green chiles, reserved liquid, and cream cheese. Spoon into a lightly greased 1-quart baking dish; sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with corn chips.
I found that it needed to be thicker for scoop so mixed 1/2 cup of the chedder cheese into the pan when breaking down the cream cheese. This adds consistency in eating.
Also added 1 oz of hot sauce and liquid smoke. Also used hot sausage
Never had anyting get eaten up like this.
Yummy! Next time will mix cheese in or leave out, as dish cooled it got that hardish shell on top, but not a huge deal. Mixed the leftovers with two scrambled eggs the next morning, as one reviewer suggested, baked at 350 for about 35 minutes and had a delicious brunch casserole the next day!
This recipe gets 5 stars because it is easy, fast and delicious. I used hot Italian sausage, mixed the cheddar into the mixture prior to baking and sprinkled extra cheese on top. I cubed the cream cheese then gave it a short zap in the microwave so it was easier to mix thoroughly into the hot cooked sausage. I served with Artisan tortilla chips and it was a winner!
To simple to pass up, but as anyone else I made a few additions. I added a small can of refried beans to the mixture, and fresh jalepenos. This thickened it a bit more, and stretched it out too. (We like to to out in a blaze of glory). Thanks for the basics, Annie.
Oh wow! Absolutely delicious! Used only green chiles since I couldn't find Rotel or the equivalent in the store. This turned out perfect and bubbly. I mixed the shredded cheddar directly into the mix rather than on top. This is the perfect dish for an appetizer for a Mexican themed party. Yummo!
